Hammond: Uk should not lower taxes below the european average after the Brexit

The british finance minister, Philip Hammond, has given an interview to the French daily Le Monde in which he has responded to questions relative to the Brexit.

In response to the question of whether the United Kingdom would play the card of lower taxes to be economically attractive, after Brexit, the representative has responded that “it is often said that London would be entered in a competition unfair in terms of tax regulation, but this is not our project or our vision for the future“.

“The amount of tax increase, measured as a percentage of GDP, is within the european average, and I think that it will remain at that level. Even after leaving the EU, our country will maintain a model of social, economic and cultural which will be reconociblemente european, “added Hammond.
